Single events often lead to several others:
Think of a cascade of dominos,
one click at a time.
Picture a ball bouncing down a staircase
unsteady, but relentless.
Today your suitcase hit the sidewalk before the glass did
but the shards followed soon after,
as did your books,
then your clothes.
Pity you aren't here to see it.
I probably should take a picture.
One of us might want a keepsake.
